The plan outlined in the original thread, and in the subtasks under
ACCUMULO-1790, is expressly aimed at not breaking 0.20 compatibility in the
1.4 bugfix line. If there's anything we can do besides running through the
release test suite on a 0.20 cluster to help ensure that, I am interested
in adding it to the existing plan.
